This birthday cake (and barbecue and potluck and dinner party cake) goes back three generations in my family—for the full story, head here. For the chocolate frosting, here are three I recommend: This one, adapted from Hershey’s Perfect Chocolate Cake, is excellent and the closest facsimile to canned frosting. This one from Food52er EmilyC is similar, but whips in cream cheese, for a richer, well-balanced milk chocolatey experience. Or if you really don’t want to take out the mixer bowl again, you can go with a ganache like this, though the deep chocolate flavor is almost too much for a homey cake like this. Recipe adapted from the Fudge Ribbon Cake and Pribble Cake on online-cookbook.com. —Genius Recipes
